Anyway, if I'm not wrong that circle has nothing to do with the main tower, check the render.

z0rg is right, the circular thing is not where the main tower will be.

The circle is for the shopping mall joining the 2 towers together.

PA main tower is further to the right

Yes I agree, maybe a change of plan, but I don't see why they would prepare a circular construction site for the shopping mall, it does not make sense. It really looks like the same construction process that is used for Shanghai tower.

I've approximately drawn the circle steel structure on the diagram




Also look at the next render, on the left, notice how it's a shopping complex at where the road bends inward to the site? The main tower is on the far end of the plot

it doesn't makes sense if the main tower would have on the left of the construation site. caused if so, how they connect the shopping mall with other site nearby?

Calm down a bit, people The fact, they are constructing circular supports doesn't have to mean anything. It means they wan't to dig there. And thats complitely understandable since they would want to have underground levels in shoping complex. I think its circular, becouse its the best shape to prevent walls from collapsing. Only one thing that is wird for me is that they are starting from shopping complex, not the tower..

Probably because they want to open the mall asap while the tower keeps growing. Happens quite often.

Maybe youre right, who knows... But when constructing such a big tower its nice to have some place to maneuvering. Its very small site. If they will build shopping mal first they will left with almost no space.

i think there's only a road between tower one and two. Shopping centre is connected to the taller tower. But anyways, any progress is good

It *could* be the extraction penetration in the slabs (they'll need to have one somewhere). The extraction peno is the hole in the slabs that they load all the dirt out from as they dig down. They're only temporary, and get filled in one by one once they finish the excavation.

That being said, it looks too big (and i can't see why they would make it in a circle - usually they're rectangular), so i'm not sure.

Well, not in China



These for instance, are mostly for square towers.
